Walton Street Winter Market - FREE - ★★★ - December, 2020


How often does one get a chance to see live camels and reindeer in Kensington? We seized the opportunity and were well rewarded. This small street fair was certainly worth a visit. The theme of the Magi's visit started with an ice sculpture at the corner of the street and was followed through with three impressive camels being ridden up and down the closed thoroughfare. Along the way we may not have found frankincense and myrrh, but there were some different artisan products and specialty foods. Merchants were generous with samples of some real craft cheeses, some excellent gin and other Christmasy treats. The crafts were also a nice change from some of the usual fare we see. And, it was all in support a worthy cause, the Royal Marsden Cancer Society. Definitely drop by if you have a chance.
